There are some pretty crazy beauty ideas out there.
It’s been the case for thousands of years (how about the Egytians with their crushed beetles?!), but these days it’s less about weird ingredients and more about the insanely luxurious materials. I’ve been trying out face oils recently in lieu of my standard lightweight moisturizer and came across one with 24K gold flakes. Uhhh, gold flakes? On my face? I mean, I love the color but it does seem a little extravagant for a product you need to use every day…
But I was talking to Brie and she mentioned that gold is a metal that’s pure enough to work in harmony with your body. That’s why tooth fillings are traditionally gold. Interesting, right? Not sure if that’s so necessary for lathering on my face twice a day.
What do you think, is the beauty industry going too far with some of their products??
